    The first copy is ok, then the 2nd copy will patch again, then say error and close the client. If i click cancel, the client just disappear. Any ways to start 2 copies of client like before ?

    You can now only start a 2nd client by using the executable client.exe

    Find it in your UO Classic folder and pin it to your start menu or send a shortcut to your desktop.

    I wish I could find a way to run more than one client with UOA.

    Create a new User Account in your Operating System. Enable Fast User Switching. Switch user accounts and load another client with UOA.

    I could not find this Classic Folder. Did a search either for "Classic" or "UO Classic" but could not find such folder.
    Where would it be located ?

    You're either being incredibly pedantic, or incredibly dense.

    On the off chance it's #2: It's the folder your UO classic client is in. Which happens to be wherever you chose to put it on your computer. So no one can help you with this but you, because you're the one that installed it.

    Well, I searched for a folder called "Classic" or "UO Classic" where the pertaining file should be but on the entire hard drive I could not find a folder with such names.......

    I have no classic folder, but I do have a folder called "Ultima Online 2D Client". Search for that.
